Now, pundits say the Blue Eagles can’t be overlooked after tearing apart two of the best teams in the league in succession.“Again, it was a great team win,” said Ateneo pivotman Isaac Go. “FEU is the No. 2 rebounding team, and one way to beat them is through heart and effort. That’s what our team showed today.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra teammates show love for SlaughterSPORTSWe are youngSPORTSCone plans to speak with Slaughter, agentFor the second straight game, Go was a pillar of strength for Ateneo, fighting off FEU big men Prince Orizu and Raymar Jose in the shaded area, just as he made life difficult for La Salle’s Ben Mbala.“I guess we just came out to fight,” said Thirdy Ravena, whose knifing layup in the closing minutes energized the Eagles as they held off the Tams’ fightback in the closing minutes. “We knew we’re the underdogs and our game plan was to work hard for every possession.” The Falcons, whose semifinal appearance came in 2011 under coach Leo Austria, moved up to 7-5 and sent the Tigers reeling to their 10th defeat in 13 games.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next PH among economies most vulnerable to virus 30 Filipinos from Wuhan quarantined in Capas Smart hosts first 5G-powered esports exhibition match in PH Chinese-manned vessel unsettles Bohol town Where did they go?

The Web is Undead

first_imgThe Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology curt hopkins Tags:#mobile#privacy#web#Web 2.0#Web Culture Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Over-reaction is endemic to discussions of the Web. Over-enthusiastic proponents – Millennialists – seem to be convinced that every burp in online tech, every new tool, every momentary trend, every relocation of a dialog box on a popular site, hails the onset of a Brave New World. On the other side, Professional Doomsayers play the part of sweaty Cassandras, scritching manically at their bespoke hairshirts, bravely warning the hoi polloi of the certainty of their bleak oblivion. This time around, what with the wholesale collapse of the Web on everyone’s lips, let’s take a look at the latter. Let us, with grave mien and bowed head, earnestly regard those things Webesque which have been proclaimed “dead” in the last few of years and shuffled, permanently, off the e-mortal coil. Harden your hearts and sharpen your stakes. We could be here a while. The Web The latest technological obituary comes courtesy of Wired. It’s the Web itself. The whole web. The reason? Order. Siloed networks like Facebook and brand-specific tools like iPhone apps are gaining more and more ground. At the same time, platform-agnostic tools like blogs dwindle. So, let’s bid a fond adieu to the woolly frontier of the wide-open Web and get ready for a charming, cultivated garden, I mean, an autocratic Prussian labor camp. Privacy Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook (re. above, “Web”), declared privacy dead earlier this year. Coincidentally, Mark just so happened to be the funeral director. Privacy dying would make Facebook’s relentless Jerry Ford-like series of stumbles a clever, far-seeing strategy instead of an atomic cock-up. Unfortunately, privacy’s personalnurses were clustered around him and managed to slap on the shock paddles until he was on his feet again. Web 2.0 This one has died a couple times. Last year, Tech Crunch declared Web 2.0 (also known as the social web, the read/write web, the live web, the webbity-web-web web) dead. The term anyway. That’s a fire that seemed to leap back up a bit with the advent of talk about Web 3.0 (or the semantic web). It’s a phrase that may not be used actively by many in the industry, but it describes a moment in the development of the Web and I’d be surprised if it ever really goes away. Four years before the TC post, ZDNet proclaimed Web 2.0 so dead it never actually existed in the first place. (I wonder if these folks ever feel like the guy with the sign proclaiming “The End is Nigh!”)Mobile WebRussell Beattie of Mowser (formerly Yahoo) declared the mobile Web as a whole was done for. Michael Mace declared that making native apps for mobile was a dying undertaking. But the mobile web’s growth has since been described as “explosive.” And mobile apps are arguably the single largest growth area in the Internet.PrintDon’t.

Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. Saturday’s game was a complete thrill. Here’s a look at some of the crazier numbers from a wild one in Stillwater.2: Only twice has OSU had a longer Big 12 winning streak than the six-game streak it is on right now. It won seven straight in 2011 and eight in a row in 2014-15.20.21: James Washington is averaging just over 20 yards per catch. It ranks him No. 2 nationally among players who have 50+ catches.8: Seasons in the last nine that OSU has won at least eight games. That is our new floor, and it is beautiful.10: Wins Mike Gundy now has over Texas Tech out of his 102. That is his most against any team.6*: Home wins for the Pokes this year which ties 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2012 for the most ever.16: By the time Tech comes back to Stillwater in 2017, it will have been 16 years since they won one there.338.4: Yards per game by Rudolph this year. He’s No. 5 in the country. Mahomes leads at 423.52: OSU is 52-6 in its last 58 games against unranked opponents.0.8: OSU continues to lead the conference in turnover margin per game at 0.8. Its next two opponents (TCU and OU) are both in the negatives.4: Three-and-outs forced by the OSU defense on Saturday. The most Tech had all year before this game was three.3: Times in the last four games OSU has rushed for 5+ yards per carry. It happened once last year.29: Straight games James Washington has caught a pass.4: 100-yard games for Justice Hill. The most for a freshman in OSU history.600: OSU just posted two straight 600-yard games (Kansas State and Texas Tech). The only other times it has done that? In 1988 against Texas Tech and Wyoming and in 2012 against Savannah State, Arizona and Louisiana.last_img read more

Stoops, Gundy Agree On One Thing Going Into Bedlam: OSU Has One Loss

Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. At this point, I think I might be a little tired of the proselytizing by Mike Gundy about the Central Michigan game. Gundy said it again on Saturday after beating TCU and drove his point home on Monday on the Big 12 coaches’ teleconference.This came two days after Bob Stoops trumpeted for him after beating West Virginia in Morgantown.“In my eyes they only have one loss, if you play by the rules,” said Stoops on Saturday. “They review everything else out here. They review a first down. You couldn’t review if that play should have been allowed or not. I have one of those. I count myself with one extra victory. That one at Oregon that everyone counted as a loss. My record book is a little different than everybody else’s.”“Every coach I’ve talked to agrees and says the same thing,” said Gundy on Monday in response to Stoops. “Bob [Stoops] is excited about our conference and the success that we’re having. Most coaches know the difference in right and wrong and what happened in that game. So I’m sure that he genuinely feels that way.“I did not see his comments, but I heard somebody had said, ‘we review everything else in football, why can’t we review that a game was over?’ I think the committee sees us as a one-loss team in my opinion. I’m just nor sure that’s something they can admit publicly.”Stoops reiterated his sentiment in his Monday press conference.Bob Stoops, again: “Oklahoma State, to me, is a one-loss team and should be ranked higher than they are.”— Cody Stavenhagen (@CodyStavenhagen) November 21, 2016Of course this is all self-serving. Gundy wants OSU to have one loss because it would mean potential entrance into the College Football Playoff. Stoops wants OSU to have one loss because it would mean beating a one-loss team to end the season and potentially get into the CFB Playoff. I sort of laid out here why the loss doesn’t really matter all that much.Either way, at least Mike and Cale Gundy will have a galvanizing topic to discuss at Thanksgiving dinner this week.last_img read more
